I am sure it was just a random act of violence, can't see why anyone would want to shoot their congressperson.

Apparently a four or five others, from her "team" were shot as well, it was some public event at a grocery store from what I gather so far...Im thinking someone has a grudge over something or it could just be a nut out to kill anyone and wanted publicity for it.

There's no organized revolt evidence here.

Just a wacko who charged at the crowd firing then ran away.

There are witnesses saying he was tackled and taken into custody.

A nut is a nut is a nut.

This is truly sad! No one deserves to be shot. Given that she is a Democrat AND from Arizona, the list of suspects could be quite large
I hope that she recovers and pray for her.

FOX news right now is reporting that Giffords along with 12 other people have been shot.
I guess democratically electing leaders got boring.

This is what I was afraid of. I must ask myself if it has begun.

Very strange, I just looked her up on wikipedia and look at her date of birth and death... Someone posted this quickly...

Gabrielle Giffords (June 8, 1970 - January 8 2011) was the U.S. Representative for Arizona's 8th congressional district. She is a member of the Democratic Party.

She is the only member of the U.S. Congress whose spouse, astronaut Mark E. Kelly, is an active duty member of the U.S. military.[1]

Giffords is known as a strong proponent of solar energy as well as for her work to secure the border with Mexico.

Her bills dont seem very edgy:

thomas.loc.gov...:FLD004:@1%28Rep+Giffords+Gabrielle%29:

Just a lot of enviro stuff and party line supporting stuff.

This is terrible, I hope they let the video out so we can see what REALLY happened.

Yeah Im thinking whoever shot is just straight up nuts, the "revolution" as some call it will not start with a congress woman from Arizona who for one was big on border security.

I am not inciting violence but just noticing
a trend.

It seems that Gov Politicians have become targets
in somebody's war. Maryland Gov. DHS Janet
Napolitano and now Giffords all in the same
week. It would appear somebody is fed up
with the current tyrannical regime.
But for the record, I had nothing to do
with any of these events. Just trying
to formulate a theory based on relevant
current events. Please forgive if this
offends.

This is true, I didnt even think about that, not sure if it could be related. Maybe a copycat type event tho. Some ppl do see others committing crimes and get it in there heads to do the same, Columbine for example.
